Hey helmet, you cocky, you hobo were some things he would call me.

During his explanation, Jung Joon Ha reiterated that while now, those types of jokes are more commonly seen in the industry, they were unheard of back when Infinite Challenge first began.

Nowadays, those wouldn’t be considered harsh. Back in the day, however, nobody joked around like that using those terms.

It was after his explanation that Jung Joon Ha confessed that he wanted to leave Infinite Challenge because of Park Myung Soo.

I was only going to appear on the show for 4 weeks. After the first recording, I said ‘Jae Suk-ah (Yoo Jae Suk) I really can’t do this. I’ll just do it once and then (I’ll leave.)’

— Jung Joon Ha

The comedian continued on with his story by revealing that it was Yoo Jae Suk who convinced him to stay on the show and that thanks to his advice, he eventually got used to Park Myung Soo’s humor.

Jae Suk held my hand and said, ‘hyung, can’t you just trust me and hold on for a little longer?’ And then I did it (Infinite Challenge) for about 4 weeks and that’s when I got used to it (Park Myung Soo’s humor.)’

— Jung Joon Ha

The comedian concluded the story about the two’s turbulent past by sharing that it was through it all that their friendship came to fruition.
